The Way We See It

When you see him physically, you are going to want to cut him. Make sure you watch the tape first. Taylor is a fascinating guy to keep an eye on because if you can get past his size and lack of elite speed, you see a guy with a couple of unique traits who can defy expectations. Has great production with 235 receptions and 21 TDs the past two seasons. He is a slot receiver at the next level. He is more quick than fast and knows how to get open. As quick as I've seen coming out of a break. Has very good hands and will compete in traffic. Can also return punts and, while he won't be a home-run returner, he won't lose the ball. Late pick because of measureables, but watch out, he will play. He won't go as high as my grade says.
